To eventually leave the Western world but in the meantime be a contributor to society, to try to learn something new everyday even if it’s small, whether about myself, world, or life itself. I try to accept everything coming at me and take each day in strides. I want to hold onto love and be a giver. I am stuck in the future and that’s my only setback.
21 years old, in my undergrad studying Psychology and minoring in Philosophy. I aspire to be a therapist one day, hopefully going for my MSW. I am an artist & a freethinker, although I’ve done some much freethinking lately that I feel like I’m all thought-out.
“I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.”
-Vincent van Gogh
“Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder…”
“Life begins on the other side of despair.”
-John Paul Sartre
Harry Potter, A Series of Unfortunate Events, anything by Ellen Hopkins, any and all texts on Ethics, The Shack, poetry by Rumi, The Sandman graphic novels, anything Neil Gaiman, and really I love all books and have read hundreds so the list goes on forever.
Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Neon Indian, fun., Iron & Wine, Bonobo, Crystal Castles, Girls, Die Antwoord, Leonard Cohen, Rush, and many more.
*Lady Gaga is my guilty pleasure.
Film & TV
A Clockwork Orange, Frankenweenie, Once, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Melancholia, The Graduate, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Waking Life, Donnie Darko, and there are too many more to list.
I don’t watch much TV, but when I do it usually consists of Dexter, Community, Weeds, Louie, South Park, Wilfred, and eventually starting on Cosmos by Carl Sagan. :)
